Manmohan Singh and Rahul Gandhi
Bangalore, May 15: Rahul Gandhi once again has been caught in Twitter jokes as the micro-blogging site has been flooded with comments on the Vice President of Congress. This time he became the victim when he skipped the farewell dinner party of the outgoing Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh.

While Congress leaders and ministers have been trying to shield Rahul, Jammu Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah lased out at the former for his decision of skipping the dinner party.

Omar tweeted, "If you knew he was not attending the dinner and he'd explained his absence to the PM earlier put out the statement BEFORE the news breaks (sic)."

Meanwhile, Rahul's office issued a statement saying that he had told the PM on Saturday that he will be out of town on the day of send-off dinner. Congress MP Ajay Maken also said that Rahul had met Manmohan on Saturday before skipping the dinner hosted for the PM at 10 Janpath.

RPN Singh, the Minister of State for Home Affairs said,"This issue should not be politicised. We should talk about great work done by the prime minister."

Just a day after the farewell dinner party, hosted by Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Twitter has been flooded with comments and jokes on Rahul as #RahulSkipsDinner tag has been trending since Thursday morning.
